So I went to Lululemon the other day and bought some new Wunder Unders. It’s pretty much the only thing I workout in because I’m not one to sport shorts. Shorts seem to be either too snug in the waist or too short in the legs, so I stick with Wunder Under capris. Well, I already have 3 pairs so I thought I should invest my gift card in a 4th pair since they are so overly priced. Wellllll, I’m a little peeved. You know how they had this huge issue with some of their pants being see through? Well, mine aren’t TOTALLY see through, but definitely a bit more visible than the other 3 I have. I dislike it. I’m totally still going to wear them, but as a coach at the gym, I feel as though I probably shouldn’t be squatting with these things on. I can’t tell you how many thongs and bare ass cheeks I see on a regular basis because squatting to full depth in spandex usually shows everything. It’s kind of creepy. But also awkward to tell those people I can see everything when they are squatting properly.

This conversation just got weird.

You know what’s so weird? When dogs look like their owners. Or is it when owners look like their dogs? I don’t know. But it happens a lot. That weirds me out. If I ever decide to take care of a living animal, I will make sure it does not look like me. Just FYI.

I hate when I can’t sleep and end up watching HGTV until 2 in the morning while snacking on Cracked Cookie Dough Nut Butter until infomercials come on. I hate infomercials. All I wanted to watch was Love it or List it and you’re trying to sell me some miracle water that rids your body of inflammation. I do not believe you. What I do believe is I turned on HGTV to watch house things. Like how to make a lamp from butchers block. Or how make a chair from an old door. Those are two things I’ve never actually seen, but I’m sure it’s possible. Anything is possible on that network. And I feel like watching HGTV instead of the Food Network keeps me from getting hungry constantly. Except when it’s 2 in the morning and I can’t put my cookie dough butter down. Sh*t that stuff is good.

Oh and before you go, let’s talk about weekend plans. I’m totally going to the farmer’s market this weekend. It’s one of my favorite places to go. Mostly because it has my favorite food truck, Quiero Arepas, and it’s good people watching. Then I think I’ll go to the park, to do more people watching. And get my tan on. Everyone likes a nice bronze. Everyone. That’s all I got. Kbye.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Yeah, I’m always kind of concerned about how much of my butt my trainers can see when I’m squatting, given how much of the girl in front of me’s ass I can see through her capris!!!!

    My friend just posted that she’s making a chalk board out of a picture frame, if we weren’t in Australia, then I’d be thinking she’d been watching that channel!!!!

  2. I totally want to look like my dog. I know, it’s weird.

    She’s just sooooo cute.

    Anyway, your weekend plans sound great! I get to pick up our meat from the farm this weekend…so EXCITED! I’ve been a vegetarian for the past three days :/ #sohangryyyy

  3. I totally agree with you on Lululemon! The quality (and the customer service at the stores) has been on the decline….. Yet, prices don’t seem to get any cheaper!!! I love how the Company fully admits that they had defective wunder unders that were sheer, yet when you try to return the defective crops the response is: You need a bigger size!! Unfortunately, for now, they are the most flattering workout clothes I can find…. Too bad everyone can see your butt!!! Please keep us posted if you find a better Lulu substitute! I would definitely check it out!

    1. Yeah, that’s their new line on the sheerness – “Its not our fault our customers are experiencing sheerness. They just are too dumb to choose the right size.” They’ve even instructed their sales staff to approach customers when they are looking at pants and say some version of, “OMG, do you know what I just found out? I thought I was a size 6 but it turns out I’m really a size 8!” No, no you aren’t. You are what size you’ve always been, its just now you have to either settle for sheerness or you have to size up and have non-workout functional pants. I don’t feel comfortable wearing their pants to Crossfit with anything but CRBs because at least the CRBs are long enough to cover my butt.

      So far I like the yoga smoga capris I bought but they just don’t have the variety that lulu does.

  4. Definitely return the capris to Lulu and then if you have a Costco near you go buy their workout capris. 100% identical to Lulu (minus the sheer butt) for like 1/5 of the price.

  5. I went to puppy training with my mini schnauzer, who totally looks and acts like me. There was a teeny tiny pug who shivered for an hour. Her trainer was a timid plump girl who didn’t speak ONE word! There was also a young guy who had an Alsatian pup. That pup tried to hump all the other innocent pups, regardless of gender…I avoided that guy…
    See through pants are funny. Never tell your clients, it’s entertaining knowing they don’t know 🙂

  6. I don’t look anything like my dog, but we act alike. We’re both weird, ADD, needy, and we both get destructive and eat things we shouldn’t when we don’t get enough exercise.

    In other news, your recipes look so good, but every time you post a new dessert/snacky thing it has some new specific ingredient that I can only get by paying muchos dollars to ship it from the US. Is there a substitute for PaleoKrunch? Can I pick any cereal that makes me happy?

  7. When it started to get warm, I bought these Nike spandex shorts, shorter than I’ve ever worn to workout in before. I was squatting and lunging in my living room and I made my husband look at me from every angle to make sure you could see neither booty nor snatch, no matter what I did. And I still felt anxious the first time I wore them.

    Also, keeping the bar close to my body whilst wearing shorts is a pain. Literally, the bar scraping against my bare thighs makes me cry. So I mostly wear capris too.

  8. I always joke about Wunder Under capris bc you honestly don’t have to wonder what’s under them since they’re so sheer 🙂 They’re still sheer even when you go up a size. I highly recommend lucy – only brand I’ll wear and aren’t the least bit see thru, even with ass to grass squats!

  9. It’s not weird about all the squatting, it’s the truth! I too have been disappointed with my latest Lulus for the same reason. And I’m making damn sure to buy the right size (which I swear they’re shrinking!). Agree about finding shorts that work. There are longer versions of Lulus that I have – Track Attack and Groovy Run Short. But who can afford enough pairs for summer? Eeesh.

  10. You know I just freaked out after reading that your clients butts show during squats, right? My poor husband is going to have to spot check me in all of my workout gear tonight to tell me if I’ve been flashing crack. Ack! One more thing to worry about at the bottom of a front squat >< But many thanks for the warning!

  11. I suggest the Reebok crossfit capris. They totally stay put, are very breathable. I love them! I just feel stupid wearing crossfit gear while crossfiting but whatever.

  12. The “wunder unders” have never been the same! I had one of the see through pairs and haven’t replaced them yet even though I have the refund. The material is just different. Kind of frustrating…Have a great weekend!

  13. Hey Juli, I love your product line, but what about adding Paleomg aprons (I love aprons,they make me feel cute 😉 ) for us to rock??!! Obviously we all love cooking, and I hate ruining my clothes.

  14. Hi Juli, I have a recipe for you to rip off…and tweak as you want. Is there a good place to send it too?? Maybe an email addy?? I would love for you to share it with everyone.

  15. Thank you so much for this post! I immediately ran to the mirror and squatted in my workout gear. While it wasn’t horrifying, it wasn’t pretty either. I am going to spend my day running around town researching new attire. Thank you for saving me from myself!

  16. Lorna Jane – you CAN NOT see through them at all, and they are awesome. I often wonder if I should tell the girl squatting in front of me that I can see her butt ?? what’s the protocol??

  17. Hey Juli, do you have any nut free granola recipes? I searched the site and couldn’t find one. I can use one with nuts, but just was curious. Thanks!

  18. Your blog is amazing! My brother and best friend tried explaining Paleo to me forever and one day it just finally clicked! Your blog was one of the first ones I found and look forward to reading it daily. I absolutely love your cookbook, btw!! It’s always a constant struggle with me though to just eat good…why is giving into temptations so annoying! Ugh! I know the right foods to eat and why, but yet I find myself give in at times when I know better, then hate myself for it, and my insides throw a fit. I want to start a blog, or at least a journal and just get my thoughts down and maybe that’ll help me stay on point. Anyway, back from my rambling, I think that’s why I love your blog so much because your rambling, I LOVE! It’s what I do…clearly. Thanks for being you and being a real girl! You’re simply amazing!

  19. My Pilates instructor made a PSA about the pervasiveness of see-thru pants in class and said “I’m not going to tell you about it if *I* see it happening, so girls – just find a good friend to check your butt!”

  20. what kind of protien powder do you use/recommend? I’m always confused, i know no soy, isnt whey part of dairy? Also allergic to mushrooms, so usually plant protiens dont work for me.

  21. I have not had the pleasure of trying the Lulu capris yet but have seen ladies wearing the ruffled butt skorts and someone said that it was made by Lulu and that she saw why they were so expensive because they actually stayed where they were supposed to. Glad to know that others actually have those same issues to deal with. FYI Never wear lgt gray compression shorts! I battled with, to tell or not to tell, that you can totally see sweat ass crack to a poor woman at our gym. However, back to the paleo bars… they really do look good and will totally try them. We are going to try paleo diet to get ready for an upcoming event and see if it makes a difference.
